Q: Crypto currency seems on the rise. Good short article today in Barron's. This is a real threat to visa and mastercard business models. I would not want to own those stocks. On the other hand, Versa bank (vb) should benefit and they are about to get us broker coverage with their pending Nasdaq listing. It could see a huge increase in share price. Gosh the company even makes good money.

Q: With recent earnings releases for the above companies completed did anything specifically surprise you or excite you about their futures more so then before? Specifically Microsoft PayPal visa and Facebook.

For Google, it’s revenue growth was massive (68%) for a company it’s size and YouTube contributing almost the same revenue this quarter as Netflix was crazy to me. With ads growth via search not going away and cloud being a big focus for them I don’t see many things stopping it…
What do you see as the biggest risk for it specifically other then the big scary Antitrust breakup?

Q: For the above stocks you tend to be positive on, over the next 3 years please rank them in order with the main goal being capital appreciation (regardless of risk, sector or diversification)

Would your ranking change at all if:

1. Covid is still affecting the world as it is today with international travel somewhat restricted and variants posing a potential problem.

2. Covid becomes more and more contained and the world is as “open for business” as it was pre covid.

Q: Relative to payment methods for the purchase of goods, bank sponsored debit and credit cards employ intermediaries such as VISA or Master Card.
This appears to be increasingly disrupted by tech companies that are not financial companies themselves, however I understand, have a bank in the background.
My question is: If I own VISA should I also consider owning PAYPAL or other to take advantage of the tech side of things thus giving my self a barbell approach? This is not a question on VISA or PAYPAL but on the benefits of investing in the new entities that seem to be appearing in the financial payment system.
